About

This rarely-recorded repertory provides an audibly authentic continuity with the chorales by the Leipzig Cantor. Without ever renouncing the admiration he accorded Bach his teacher, Homilius evinces prodigious compositional talent: unanticipated freshness surges from the complete set of these chorales as the composer successfully endeavours to embrace the new era of the ‘empfindsamer Stil’. This literary current exalts immediate expression and the preeminence of passionate feelings, genuineness, rationality. It emphasizes elegance, clarity, formal balance and simplicity of melody.
